I went here last night for an evening meal. I ordered the scabbard with shrimp. It was fine, quite tasty although nothing special. The veg were well cooked though. Service was very good however.

Found this through trip advisor as we wanted to not go to the same row of restaurants by our resort. Take the short trip up the hill to the right of the main bus stop. Food was great, large portions and at a good price.

This restaurant is definitely worth the walk into the hills of Canico. Extremely friendly service coupled with excellent food. The staff were willing to tweak the menu to our needs and were helpful throughout. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Only looks like a small bar at first, you can sit outside but bigger inside and the food is fantastic.. Very friendly service. We had to walk up a steep hill to get there, but it was worth it, went twice.

After what seemed like climbing Everest we got to Fados. A couple of cold beers soon helped and the blue sea view was brilliant. We ordered a garlic bolo da caco to start which came with a plate of olives, local cheese and tomato. Very...More

Just call from the hotel. Actually it's never packed. Taxis are cheap anyway so catch one there, get them to wait incase you can't get in.
